National bowler escapes custodial sentence for statutory rape
By V. Anbalagan 0 comments



PUTRAJAYA: A national bowler escaped custodial sentence for committing statutory rape with a 13-year-old girl three years ago.

The Court of Appeal yesterday allowed Noor Afizal Azizan's appeal against the High Court decision to sentence him to five years jail.

A three-man panel led by Court of Appeal president Tan Sri Raus Sharif substituted the jail term with a bound over for good behaviour for five years.

If Noor Afizal breached the order, his bailor will have to pay RM25,000.

Raus in his decision agreed with counsel Hisyam Teh Poh Teik, who represented Noor Afizal, that public interest would not be served if his client was given a custodial sentence when he had a bright future.

Hisyam said that Noor Afizal was 18 years old when the offence was committed.

The Sessions Court in Malacca bound over Noor Afizal for good behaviour on a RM25,000 bond for five years after he pleaded guilty to raping the girl at a hotel in Ayer Keroh, Malacca on June 5, 2009.

The Sessions Court, on July 5 last year, in binding him over considered several factors including that there was a consensual sexual relationship between him and the girl.

The public prosecutor successfully appealed to the High Court on Sept 20 last year and obtained a five year jail term.

Noor Afizal, now 21, represented Negeri Sembilan between 2004-2010 and at the same time he represented Malaysia in the National Youth Category for five years between 2004-2008.

He is expected to represent Kedah in several up-coming tournaments such as the KL International Open Championship 2012.

Deputy Public Prosecutor Nadia Hanim Mohd Tajuddin appeared for the prosecution.

Consensual sex? Excuse me. The girl was 13 when she was raped by the man (who was 18 when the crime was committed). She would be 16 and still a minor today. What consensual sex?
So what is the message that YA Rauf Sharif is sending to us? That it is not ok for a loser to rape someone's little girl but it is OK if the rapist happens to be a fantastic bowler, a national star, someone with a bright future? 
What about the minor's future?

Talk about stupidity, this judge sure takes the cake. A rape is a rape and the victim has to live the trauma time and again. Just because the perpetrator has a bright future does not negate what he has done. What about the girl's future? Is that not a consideration? Something is fundamentally wrong with this judgement. Can the Malaysian BAR raise this issue?

Aint that the main reason and justice is served. The girl has no more DARA for her future husband and she may end up in a bothel as man only look for DARA while Afizal due to his VERY BRIGHT future can continue bowling and made more $$$$ with custodian watching over to ensure no other teenage DARA be raped. WHen the time comes he will find a DARA to get married. That's life and no doubt it in Malaysia where every one is equal?

Malaysia as a country is becoming a big joke, two guys got arrested and cuffed smiling away perhaps knowing they will get away with their crime!
Star or no star the guy had sex with a 13 years old and that is statutory rape in many civilised country this is a heinous crime but in Malaysia semua Boleh! Boy I am fed up yes I am going to puke!

Pasquale said...

I think and believe all the judges who let this rapist free are all supporting Pakatan Rakyat out to give the present government a bad name and Najib deems as a paper tiger in so far as being a prime minister!
AG chambers should look into this decision to let this animal free! Ptui!

Salam Datuk,

Strange decisions indeed.

How about this one, "Stall trader gets seven days jail for molesting neighbour - A food stall trader was sentenced to seven days jail, Friday, after being found guilty of having oral sex with a housewife without her consent. http://bit.ly/NkiZ1d

Not only the decision, the case itself is also puzzling.

Warmest regards

What happen that underage girl alleged raped by the ex UMNO CM? Is she alright now. I presume she had been well taken care by the caring UMNO.

Statutory or not, its consensual. The judge consider that too (apart from the mighty expensive his daddy provided).

Furthermore, he's the 'Yang Arif", you aren't.

This is the kind of sick stuff that would make anyone from any walk of life throw up.

The court has failed this time, in my opinion. The law was broken, a very serious crime was committed, and the supposed punishment will simply serve as an example to all closet pedophiles that "Hay, it's not as bad as I thought." No lashes, nothing??

The court needs to re-evaluate their sentencing, quick look at our Penal Code (Act 574) and looking under Section 375, ALL FORMS OF RAPE LEAD TO Section 376, where it clearly states:
"Whoever commits rape shall be punished with imprisonment
for a term of not less than five years and not more than twenty years, and shall also be liable to whipping."

However, at the same time, I would blame the caretakers of the girl for putting her in such a position. The excuse that "Oh, but she didn't know what she was doing" has time and time again been used over and over again like a broken record. In a world that is filled with useless parents, both sides need to be blamed for it. I see it as grounds for negligence which endangered a minor under their care.

Noor Afizal does not deserve such a lenient walk away from this. He deserves to be punished by the full brunt of the law, as a reminder to future wrong doers that society as a whole will not accept them for what they had done, regardless of status or position.

My only hope is that those who have gotten away with it have what is coming for them.

MA.

I thought Rahim Thamby Chik's case found him not guilty over the alleged raped. The girl wrongly accused him. It was a case of mistaken identity. Lim Guan Eng went to jail for defaming RTC over this incident when even the court had cleared the ex CM. LGE went to jail not for defending the girl. He went to jail for defamation against his political rival. LGE at that time was a Melaka politician.

I believe the judge for this case made the wrong decision. Troubling indeed.

The judges must have read their law books upside down and had their exam papers marked by intoxicated Irish drinking imitation whisky.

What kind of judgement is this?

Aku Sengal said...

Before judging the judicial system of Malaysia, better get the facts & law correct..

Statutory rape is when a girl under 16 years old had intercourse with a guy WITH OR WITHOUT HER CONSENT..it is considered as RAPE..

however, in this case..he was her BF and she consented to it..although her consent was irrelevant in the eyes of law..it is relevant in the eyes of the person applying the law..

what if you had sex with your gf and she wants it too but later u found out that she was under age? DO U THINK U SHUD SERVE 5 YEARS IMPRISONMENT FOR THE THING YOU AND YOUR GF HAD ENJOYED TOGETHER?

I don't think a 3 men bench can be mistaken. They are both minors at the time of offence (see Age of Majority Act).

Yes the girl was below 16 and that is statutory rape but when the rapist is also underaged, the court has a discretion on the sentencing.

Remember the boy who killled his tuition teacher's daughter? He too was underaged but due to the gravity of the offence, he can't be allowed to walk free but detained at the pleasure of the king.

It is indeed a matter of concern. If a crime has been committed and established, then the perpetrator must be punished according to the law. While such travesty of justice is nauseating, it is equally nauseating to see how some of the trolls in your blog attempt to take the opportunity to gain some political points by linking unrelated cases that is not a precedent at all. Since they are at that, let's take the comments which said there is a precedent of a minor being raped and the perpetrator getting away scott free. Of course the case is related to former Malacca Chief Minister Rahim Thamby Chik.
In that case, the court found insufficient evidence to convict him for allegedly having sex with a minor (regardless whether it is consensual or otherwise as still constitutes rape). In fact, later on, the girl purportedly to have been raped by Rahim, had even come out to publicly deny that she was a victim of such a crime. Of course, there was a flurry of allegations that she was paid off to make the public appearance but the crux of the matter is that "if the victim said she was NOT a victim, how can there be a perpetrator".
Unless it can be proved that bribery or threats were involved. This is unlike the case of this bowler whereby he is found guilty of having sex with a minor, though consensual, is still statutory rape.
Secondly, Guan Eng was jailed for sedition and distribution of slanderous pamphlets (read here: http://eddydaud.blogspot.com/2012/07/guan-eng-went-to-prison-for-malay.html).
Of course, Guan Eng and his ilks attempted to turn him into a hero for the Malays and that is not surprising given that the DAP was widely regarded as anti-Malay and anti-Islam, and still is.
What Guan Eng had done then was to manipulate a gullible grandmother to pursue his political agenda.
After being sent to jail, true to their nature, Guan Eng and his DAP propaganda machine worked overtime to turn him into a martyr, sloganeering that Guan Eng was jailed in fighting for a Malay girl etc.
If the whole issue is dissected, it is obvious that the fight for the Malay girl was taken up by Guan Eng because it was a political opportunity. Even though being incarcerated is probably not something that Guan Eng had bargained for then, it paid off in the long run.
Apart from linking the Guan Eng case to your posting, some of the trolls are trying to now turn Rafizi who is facing the Bafia case, into another "Guan Eng" episode.
If there is any precedent it is the efforts to make Rafizi a martyr as was in the case of Guan Eng.
Again, what the trolls choose to "hide" is the fact that Rafizi had broken the Bafia laws, jeopardising the trust on the entire banking system in Malaysia.
Caught with his pants down, Rafizi and his cheerleaders attempts to use the Whistleblowers Protection Act to protect himself.
Even though the WPA clearly shows that Rafizi cannot and will not be considered a whistleblower, his propagandists kept pressing on and has now made the WPA a subject of ridicule.
This is where the problems lies - the inability (intentionally or otherwise) to separate the two issues - one about the NFC (whether a crime had been committed or otherwise) and breaking the Bafia laws.
Based on the two cases - Guan Eng vs Rahim and Rafizi vs NFC, it is obvious that there are precedents set by the Pakatan players - it does not matter whether you lie, break the laws, misinform or cheat - as long as you can annihilate your political opponent - your are a hero.

He who will never trust Guan Eng, ever again

Of course it is, in fact if you rape an underage you can even be called a Tan Sri and you need the chinese chauvinistic DAP fella to save an underage malay girl and yet go to jail.

This case is not surprising i wonder why it did surprise Rocky the dorky.

Something is very very wrong with our country nowadays. Our leaders keep talking about morals and all that but here is a confirmed case of rape and the rapist is let loose? For what he did, his future deserves to be destroyed which is what they do in Singapore to someone who is caught and guilty of corruption. No exceptions.

Dont forget a sodomist is at loose and wrecking the country because the idiot judge thought he is being fair by being divine to expect evidences to be 100% convincing beyond the humanly possible "beyond reasonable doubt."

Then the idiot judge could accept the questionable expertise and credential of two socalled DNA expert fromAustralia.

In addition, the judge could fall for political pressure from abroad.

Frankly, most of the opposition sympathiser judges are not onterested in justice but politics that they have failed on their responsibility to do their work.

Judges should not be immune to contempt of court protection when they do stupid jydgement lije this.

How do we expect to clean the country of crimes, corruptions, and immorality if this is how our judges make decisions?

God save malaysia when judges become big headed under pakatan socalled promises for independent judiciary.

I would have expected the judge to consider that he is a national sports player and has a moral obligation to ensure his good behaviour and that is not raping anyone, be it minor or adult. As such, the judge should have given him harsher jail terms in view of hism being a person the young ones should look up to as a sportsman.

Dont forget the other equally ludicrous judgements we have been hearing of late when the verdict flies in the face of the evidence.And mind you, I haven't even touched on the equally absurdist interpretations pertaining to legal suits.

As long as the bench is infested with vermin and scumbags of a certain political colour (no prizes for guessing which), then truly will justice be not only blindfolded but gagged as well ready to be raped...

What we need is a thorough cleanup of the scumbags clogging the system before we get something, like sanity, rationality and fairplay flowing like a mighty river but then again do the powers that be realize of the Trojans in their midst?
